Bonnie Porter Greene

About Bonnie Porter Greene
Bonnie explores her love of the landscape through reflective studio practice & en plein air excursions resulting in direct and honest painted memories of the landscape. Her paintings imbue her connection and concern for the environment.
Always involved in an array of creative projects, an artistic response will always follow interactions with nature that have impacted significantly upon her.
Bonnie is represented by Jennings Kerr in NSW.
Join local instructor Taylor from Yonder Movement for a morning Vinyasa Flow class. Designed to sustain concentration and build awareness in the body, this class welcomes all bodies and levels of ability.
Taylor is a Primary School teacher and owner of Yonder Movement. In 2017 she travelled to India to learn how to teach yoga. She began teaching her students, and her collegues. The resilience, self-confidence and patience they developed towards each other and themselves saw Taylor expand her teaching practice into Yonder Movement.
